Speculated for some time as the BlackPad, the very first RIM tablet has just popped up, being called the PlayBook. Revealed during today’s developer conference, this iPad killer has a pretty nifty specs list available after the break and a cool preview video at the end of the article, showing its multitasking features.

BlackBerry PlayBook is focused on the enterprise side of things, a fact proved by its official description, too: “the first professional tablet”. Its powerful CPU, memory and display get detailed in the following specs list:

Display: 7 inch LCD, 1024 x 600 pixels, capacitive touchscreen with multitouch and gesture support
CPU: 1GHz dual core processor, ARM Cortex A9
Memory: 1GB RAM
Camera: dual HD cameras; 3MP cam at the front, 5MP at the back, with support for 1080p HD video capture
Connectivity: HDMI, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, microUSB, microHDMI

Other features: Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support, Adobe Mobile AIR support, OpenGL, Java, 1080p HD video playback, multitasking, flexible application platform

Apparently, RIM will also be offering 3G and 4G versions of the PlayBook in the future, which is pretty good news for carriers working with such technologies. Well, at least the model doesn’t rely on BlackBerry handsets for its connectivity. Looking forward for more info on that open platform running on the deviceā€¦
